Bug A Boo Stamps Stella

I wanted to title my blog post Stella The Stalker by Bug A Boo Stamps but don't want all the SPAM comments that come with it to moderate!  Have you noticed you have to be careful with that?  A little innocent fun and we get all the weirdo spammers...

It's Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug!  One of my favorite days of the week!  For my card today I used Stella, she was printed and waiting to be colored.  I used Copic markers B28, B24, B23, C6, C3, C1, C0, YG11, YG13, YG17, E0000, E000, E00, E01, E02, R27, R24, R22, R21.  My layout is sketch challenge #78 from Just Us Girls a few weeks ago.

I really like this sketch with the circle going off the page.  If I would have planned this out I would have taken my Stella image and flipped it in my Publisher software before I printed her so the circle would be on the same side as the sketch.  But... sketches are supposed to be used for inspiration so I adapted it to work for my fun image.  

The sentiment that's printed on my red panel comes with Stella, I stretched it just a little to fit my sketch layout.  The cardstock used are Via Vellum Basic Black, Via Vellum Leaf Green, Neenah Solar White, Neenah Red Linen, Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue & Blush Blossom.  I used round Spellbinders dies to cut Stella out and also used the "out of the box" technique then added a row of black metal dots to the SU Blush Blossom strip.  Oh, I added a touch of crystal lacquer to her glasses for some shine/glare.

I hope you'll stop by  our Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug challenge blog today to see all the fabulousness our design team has come up with for Oldie But Goodie Thursday!

Love your colour choices and the image and sentiment are hilarious. That's the kind of kind that would make anyone smile when they receive it!
